Having more fun with my Pink Persimmon stamps. I stamped this boy on some gesso painted cardstock with stazon ink. Then I colored him with tombow markers. Stephen was there chanting, "Make a yellow shirt, make a yellow shirt" So I did. The gesso piece and the black piece were already cut to this size and sitting on my desk. Actually the kraft piece too! So I layered the already cut pieces and stitched tons. I went around three times. I also intentionally changed the stitch width in places to get a real shabby look to it.

And here is one of my all time favorite Creations. Although of course God had a huge part in this one, DH too! haha.
No really I was just happy to catch a bit of a smile with no flash. My camera's shutter speed is super slow with no flash *and not adjustable*. Ethan never stops moving so it's hard to take a picture of him with no flash. But he let me do it! I especially love the paint on his face.

I was hoping my pink persimmon stamps would arrive today, but alas, they did not.

I love, love, love how you are using yours. And what great inspiration you have from your darling little boys. Stephen and Ethan are just too, too cute!
